iTunes Review

VOTA’s 2009 self-titled album is a debut release, sort of. Previously known as Casting Pearls, the Christian pop-rock trio (now a quartet) decided to change its name to avoid confusion with the hugely popular Casting Crowns. The music here shows considerable savvy and flair, harkening back to ’90-era Newsboys with touches of Hawk Nelson and Sanctus Real thrown in. VOTA is heavily into big crowd-rousing numbers, kicked off by brash guitars and pulsating synthesizers. “Hard to Believe,” “Not Finished,” “Give It To Me,” and “Love’s Taken Over” are prime examples of the band’s skill at crafting chant-along expressions of faith and reverence. Singer/guitarist Bryan Olesen tones down his playful swagger just enough to deliver ballads like “Honestly” and “In My Heart” with a sense of inner reflection. Unexpected touches — such as the Latin-cum-Middle-Eastern ambiance of “Bye Bye” — add some variety to the power-poppy thrust of the album. Wrapped inside these buoyant, nearly hyperactive sounds are serious Christ-centered lyrics — “Save Ourselves,” for instance, reaffirms man’s helplessness without God, and VOTA works well as a sustained jolt of faith-affirming fun.

Dance Vibes and Rock

I was very surprised by the different styles of music on this new cd. VOTA brings a lot of cool dance vibes similar to a Maroon 5 sounds from time to time, but also breaks down into some piano music that actually fits perfect with their sound. A solid album all around. Get it and enjoy!

The new Casting Pearls!

I enjoyed listening to Casting Pearls, and had high expectations for them. To my dismay thet broke up, but thankfully they're back! With the new name comes better production, better hooks, and even better vocals. Songs range from the electro-rocker Hard to Believe to the grandly optimistic Free to Fail to the beautiful slow track Honestly. What can I say but welcome back guys!

What if we?

What if we all said thank you to iTunes for providing good music with a good message? I mean, would that be too crazy of an idea?!?
